Wind farm and trees

ISER is proud to support the University of Adelaide Centre for Materials in Energy and Catalysis (CMEC). Professor Shizhang Qiao, Centre Director, and his team at CMEC, are undertaking fundamental research into new types of high-performance low-cost metal-based electrocatalysts that are the key to the development of sustainable energy solutions and help to achieve carbon neutrality. They are developing catalysts which can be ‘tailored’ to different uses.
